Pirate Teeth: A new song, a rough mix.

We’ve just completed the final international stop of our CS6 WW Launch Tour, and it’s truly been an amazing ride. Over the past 10 weeks, our team consisting of myself, Terry White, Rufus Deuchler and Paul Trani have traversed the globe bringing CS6 goodness to all…and it’s one of the most memorable launches I’ve ever experienced in my nearly 12 years of doing this gig.

In any case, back in Moscow (a few weeks ago) I debuted a new song I’ve been working on for my (soon-to-be-released) children’s music show, Just Play Music™ entitled PIRATE TEETH. In Johannesburg and Capetown (today), I showcased live mixing of this new tune via IP-based controllers (using a 3rd Party iPad App to control Adobe Audition) and the responses were so good (and there were quite a few requests) I figured I would just make the song available to everyone, even in its raw, rough-mixed form.

You can download the rough/faders-only mix of Pirate Teeth HERE

It’s about 5.5MB…Hope you enjoy! Now, for the audio geeks out there: this is a rough, faders-only mix, meaning that I literally brought up all the faders and exported. No EQ, no mastering, only a little (analog) Echoplex delay on my Live Vocal and some compression on the entire mix (solely to make it louder for distributing via the web). But it’s raw, live, and I hope you enjoy it.

Let me know what you think!!

Oh, and here are the lyrics, by request (it is, after all, a really fast tune!)
———-
Pirate Teeth
Words & Music by Jason Levine/©2012 Boodahjoomusic (BMI)

Chorus (and start of tune):

You’ve got to brush ’em, brush ’em
So you don’t get Pirate Teeth
You gotta brush ’em twice a day so you don’t get Pirate Teeth
They will fall out of your mouth and it will be quite a scene,
Turning multi-colored, yellow, brown and shades of green
When you have Pirate Teeth (Har! Har! Har! Har!)
When you have Pirate Teeth (Har! Har! Har! Har!)

Scurvy’s not unnerving when you have Pirate Teeth
Because you help yourself to servings of whatever you please
But without a daily dosage of your Vitamin C
You’ll be whilstin’ Dixie through a gap as wide as the sea
When you have Pirate Teeth (Har! Har! Har! Har!)
When you have Pirate Teeth (Har! Har! Har! Har!)

BRIDGE (Eb Maj7):
But the affects are reversible
If you eat your fruits and vegetables
Yes, the affects are reversible (if you brush ’em twice a day, morning and night)
If you eat your fruits and vegetables and get your Vitamin C and brush ’em right

Piano solo…

BRIDGE

Now you know the story about Pirate Teeth
So let this be a warning to prevent Pirate Teeth
They will fall out of your mouth, and it will be quite a scene
Turning multi-colored, yellow, brown and shades of green
You gotta brush ’em, brush ’em so you don’t get Pirate Teeth
You mustn’t rush it or you may end up with gums that bleed
And those little rotten chompers will not want to be seen
After turning multi-colored, yellow, brown and shades of green
When you have Pirate Teeth (Har! Har! Har! Har!) x3

Harrrr!!

    1. Thanks! I think it’s a message that can resonate with kids and parents alike! In any case, the app I used was called AC-7 Core (there are two versions I believe; this is the one that I used on stage). Go Create! —JL

  1. Jason I want to thank you and the fellows globe trotters, for most probably Awssomesssssssssss Road show I have ever attended, I so wanted to meet you in Cape Town, but there were so many groupies around you,who would not blame them , it made you look like a Rock Star.

    1. Thanks so much for the kind words! Indeed, Cape Town and Jozi were truly amazing events, and such a fitting ‘closer’ to this long tour. It was a real pleasure and honour to present for you, and we look forward to returning soon! Be sure to come up and say hi next time! Best—JL

  2. I still wonder where you got the idea of the song 🙂
    I love the idea and each time I hear it it brings a smile.

    Har Har Har!

    1. Thanks, Gert! It literally came to me in a dream…I had written the chorus (and first verse) in my sleep, dreaming, on a plane. I woke up upon landing, sang it into my iPhone (whilst traversing an airport terminal late in the evening) and the rest is history…:) Spread the word, my pirate friend! Har!–jl

  3. The lyrics of that song makes me laughed! Specially the repetition: When you have Pirate Teeth (Har! Har! Har! Har!)
    When you have Pirate Teeth (Har! Har! Har! Har!). The lyrics arises oral awareness and its importance.
